Subject: [Leica] so have you been good?
From: Brian Reid <>

My father died last weekend; his funeral was yesterday. I've been very
distracted and have not been reading the LUG. I might choose not to go
back and read a week's worth of LUG unless there's some
tempest-in-a-Nikor that I need to know about.

Yes, I had my Leica in the room when he died. No, I haven't developed
the film yet. I exposed Tri-X at 800 and I've never done push processing
before; I'm going to do some reading before I pour any chemicals. ICUs
are dark places.

I'm going to write a message about the actual photography in a while.
I must confess that while I was taking pictures, I kept remembering
Tina Manley saying that she liked to use Leicas because they can take
pictures in the dark.

I think the LUG archive search engine is broken; it seems to be
returning only matches from Volume 19. Damn. It takes about 30 hours of
computer time to regenerate the index. Maybe after I recover from this
trip I can figure out what's wrong without having to rebuild the whole
search index.
